hero (n.): a person noted for courageous acts or nobility of character
See? A hero doesn't have to be fictional. We can all be heroes. (...cue David Bowie). In all honesty, though, yes, we can. You can be your own hero, if you're not already.
How, you may ask?
Know who you are. Don't loosen your boundaries or lower your standards. Have integrity. Know your strengths and your weaknesses...and keep learning 🧡
Have courage to do what's right. Stand up for others. Speak up for anyone who can't. Face your fears. Do the right thing.
Don't give up. Don't stop fighting the 'bad guys' in your life! Keep taking the small steps that will make the big change. Keep an open mind. Stay optimistic. Believe in yourself. Tell yourself something encouraging, every day.
I believe in you. Even if you don't feel like a hero right now, just remember Hercules...zero to hero just like that 👌🎵
